Ukulele: Mahalo Soprano Ukulele
Hi guys and welcome to our channel. My name is Alanzhelon and today I want to speak about Mahalo Soprano Ukulele or to be more precise, I want to present it.
That’s why I’m going to put the accent on the main features, and also play and sing something, so let’s start.
First of all I want to say at the time I’m a beginner in this musical field and all my opinions are very subjective and based on my little experience which is about one month.
I don’t have any musical education so I am a true amateur and I don’t know which Ukulele is the best and which Ukulele is the worst.
It’s my first one, but after a month it looks like this Ukulele is definitely not the worst one.
Mahalo is a cheap ukulele brand first registered in Japan, shortly after manufactured in China and now in Indonesia. This brand is also known for making crazy design instruments but I have black one though as I like minimalism.
By the way Mahalo is a Hawaiian word which means – “Thank you”.
One of the main features this musical instrument has is good value for money.
Mahalo ukulele finger boards and bridges are made from Indonesian rosewood, neck from mahogany, body from exotic nieta, it produces brighter sound.
Strings bends nicely and as you can see front markers are painted clearly and correctly, this point is on the fifth fret, this on the seventh and the last one on the 10th.
This Mahalo soprano ukulele is equipped with the Aquila Nylgut strings.
To tune the instrument I always use the application called Guitar Tune, where I select soprano ukulele mode. It actually is my favorite application to tune my ukulele or guitar.
One downside about this ukulele is that it needs to be tuned very often.
Speaking about the price it varies from 30 to 40 dollars. And what I think about the price is that it’s not a big difference for a beginner, but when you become an advanced player you start to feel sound suppler and pay attention to details a lot more.
So my personal opinion is that the more you learn the better quality instrument you need. Price is definitely not the main point in the beginning.
Now I want to show how it sounds, I’m going to play a song by Of Monsters and Men called “Little Talks”. To play this song you need to know just four chords: A minor, F, C and G.
Thanks for watching, come back for the next one.
